In the Cold Night

Discover our new film

The film is based on the real-life experiences of the families ShelterBox supported in Syria and Türkiye after the devastating earthquakes earlier this year, and raises awareness of the threat that winter poses to people fleeing conflict and disaster.

With a story written by Sarah Tagholm, illustrated by Karen George and read by Imelda Staunton

How We Work

Our Impact

Emergency Disaster Relief

Right now, over 100 million people around the world have been made homeless by disaster and conflict. ShelterBox is working to change this.

By providing emergency shelter and tools for families robbed of their homes by disaster, we’re transforming despair into hope.

We want to see a world where no family is left without shelter after disaster. Find out more about us.

About ShelterBox

ShelterBox exists to ensure no one is without shelter after disaster. We often work in places that others don’t, making sure that we reach families who need support to take the next step in resuming their livelihoods.

From Cameroon to Syria, all the way to the Philippines and the Caribbean, ShelterBox has provided shelter to over 2.5 million people so far.

We won’t stop until we see a world where no family goes without shelter after disaster.
